If you have experienced a significant loss in your life, and you are feeling the need to be with others experiencing similar emotions, the Bereavement Support group is there to help meet your needs. This initiative does not pretend to meet all the needs of those who grieve. It is established to create a place of prayer and reflection. There are three initiatives: Prayer - Mass of Remembrance and Healing three times annually; Bereavement Support Groups - an established faith-based group which meets in the Winter Spring and Fall to offer structured support for those who are grieving, Caregivers Support - a place of sharing information about how to provide quality care and how to sustain the vitality of the caregiver. To register please see the Registration form or call the Parish Office: 317.257.2266
**Coming in October: Grieving with Great Hope
Grieving with Great Hope has been well received in several parishes in Michigan and Ohio and we are scheduling this retreat format at IHM in October. For information about the presenters and to learn more about this wonderful weekend experience log onto www.goodmourningministry.net
Participants will meet in the church on Friday evening for a spiritual start to the grief work that lies ahead. We will again gather on Saturday morning in the Gathering Space for a full day of learning about aspects of grief, sharing our stories, and finding hope in our grief journeys.
